We ate here as a special treat for my husband's birthday and we weren't disappointed. The wine list was extensive and the menu had a lovely selection of fish or meat dishes. We had 3 courses and a bottle of red for 150 euro ( for 2). Although a bit pricey it was very good value for what we got.... More

Disappointed with this restaurant. The food was good but limited. The wine was expensive compared with other similar restaurants. Felt abut crushed. The ambience did not live up to the cost.

We read a review about this restaurant in Frommers book so we tried it. It was delicious, the wine great & staff very pleasant but it was very pricey. Wish I had checked it before we went because we were not looking to spend that much for a meal. It was worth it but I don't know if we would... More

Fantastic restaurant in Piazza Tasso. As you sit down you get greeted with a lovely glass of Prosecco and then they also give you a complimentary amuse bouche which in our case was a typical Neapolitan caponata, delicious.We had a three course meal, as a special that night they had some buckwheat paccheri with lobster....I still dream of that dish...

We came here as part of a shore excursion on Royal Caribbean and had a nice meal with our three teenage daughters. It is in the middle of Sorrento and across from a lovely store that sells inlaid wood. It is a white tablecloth kind of place, with good service. We had wine, cheese and spinach cannelloni with red sauce,... More

One of the best in Sorrento! If you go to Sorrento, you must try. What a menu! The food and atmosphere is terrific. Eat outside and just take everything in. What a neat place to share a meal with your significant other. Food preparation is not only great, it is great to eat. What a menu and variety. Everything. Restaurant... More

If you are looking for a special meal, and like fine dining, I recommend O Canonico. This was one of the more expensive meals we had whilst in Sorrento, The service was attentive but respectful. The wine list is the biggest I have ever seen and there are some real star wines. The food was delicious. I am only sad... More

Ate there last night. We have eaten here previous years and have been disappointed before so should have known better. We have eaten nearly every where in Sorrento. The prices are very high especially starters, 5 clams were 30 euros, this makes it our most expensive meal this year. Ok if the food was top notch but our experience is... More

dear Sir we do not have any clams as starters. if I do not go wrong, it it is you, you have ordered Scallops and have asked for 5 pieces , instead of 3 which is the regular portion. if you are used to eat scallops, ( the original Boston USA ) you might know its price. and all our... More

We stopped here for lunch and were amongst a large tour group. The house sparkling wine was pretty, house white wine was OK. We expected a bit more, but were told by a local that this was a "typical" Sorrento lunch. Food seemed basic and plain (at least what we had) which consisted of a slice of turkey with melted... More

We visited here with our teenage children on our first trip to Sorrento. The meal and service were the best we have enjoyed at the time, if a little pricey. We decided to return here for our Silver Wedding Anniversary and after attempting to book a table for the particular evening were assured to turn up and we would get... More
